Hi All,

Thanks for the praise on the new website. Just a quick note that we will be checking these forums regularly, so if you see something out of whack, please let us know, no matter how small. We value your feedback on helping make this the best kiting site around.

Oh, Avatars are working cheese

Yup, I like the updates too.

OK, just so you don’t think you’ve got it too easy grin ....

1) When viewing the forum at the top level, or looking at the list of topics, the “Posted Date” is stuck in “American” format of mm-dd-yyyy.  I went to my profile to look for some appropriate setting and set the time format to be “European”, but it hasn’t done anything with the dates.  This might sound trivial, but it’s very confusing format when you’re not used to it.  It’s only when viewing a topic that the dates show in “dd Month yyyy” format.
2) One great feature of the old forum was that for each topic where there were new items to read, there was an icon to click on to go to the first unread item within that topic.  I don’t see anything similar on this new one.
3) All the web pages (main site and forum) are a fixed width, which means that with my browser (which isn’t full screen), I have to scroll horizontally to see everything.  I have my browser at such a size that I can have 2 of them side by side, so it’s narrower than the sites fixed width.

Quite excited about the new gear and can’t wait to get my hands on all of it.

You need to change the hyperlink colours on the forum, nearly impossible to read.

Small update here on our progress of fine tuning the website:

1 - hyperlinks in signatures are adjusted to be visible!
2 - Forum date localization - we are looking into this. If it matters to you, it matters to us.
3 - We have added a ‘Your image is missing’ banner for signatures and inline images. (.Joel, your signature image is using a broken link)
4 - We have enabled the use of images in signatures, and you can upload the images to the OR server.
5 - Fixed width, well, err….... that is sort of a darned if you do, darned if you don’t issue we struggled with. Suffice to say it is fixed width at this time, though the old site was also fixed width, albeit a bit narrow.
6 - News is back online for kiting and surfing. We will have the news moved into the new format shortly.

That is all for now. More updates as the week winds up to the weekend.

PS. Almost forgot, there is a link on the main forum page for New Posts. Although not forum by forum, it will show you what is new and unread.

I like the new site for sure, nice look and layout.  I am avid user of the session log and have found a couple of glitches though.  Maybe just my log in, but just in case anyone else if having a problem.

- I can not find a sum of MY total hours logged.  Good to have for reference.

- The drop down for ‘location’ is still there, but not populated, even with my entries added on the new website.

That is all for now.  Pretty impressive that OR is so on top of this website and any glitches, just like their product.

Woops, saw it after I posted.  It has ‘old’ signature data being tagged to my posts, not the current info I have entered.

Member session logs will be coming up on Monday, and the drop down for the location on the session logs will get a fix too. Kontinuos, I took a look at the signatures, and the current signature in your profile is showing on your posts. Could you check your signature again, and let me know if they still look different to you? If the do look different, send me a private message or email me with the differences.

Thanks.

Double woops on the signature, I was looking on my public profile of what gear I had, not my signature data.  It is correct now (and my issue before).

Personal total session times are now available on the crewsite chapter page. Working on the ability to edit your own sessions and to delete your own entries. Also, session entries will now post immediately instead of the delay you have been seeing for them to post.

Thanks for getting the total back up!

Still not seeing the posting right away, how much of a lag should we expect?

Do you think we can get the drop down list of already ridden locations back in action?

Found something else that might be amiss.  Once logged on, and I click on view my photos, it does take me to my photos, but it has title ‘Gallery Home :: Rider Gallery ::West Beach 12 07 2 100’.  I do not have an image or gallery of West Beach 12 07 2 100 that I know of.

When I uploaded a couple of images I could not find a link to simply upload another.

When I try and view my gallery I get past the first 3 or 4 photos before I then get shots from other peoples’ gallery’s.

Also are you going to bring back the slide show facility?

Is there any way to edit ones own pictures after they have been posted? It seems the new site “mutated” some of my pictures so they display sideways or upside down.

One other thing that’s bugging me a bit is that i get logged out every time i leave the website, is there anyway to just leave us logged in until we decide ourselves to log out?

Just lick on “log out” at the top, then click on “log-in” and it will take to you a log-in page where you can check the “keep me sign in” option and not just the “remember me” option on the quick sign-in section.

I would imagine licking on log-out won’t get you far, and would probably make your screen harder to use.
